It was a pleasure to speak with Ottawa’s Julie Lalonde yesterday on her CHUO show The Third Wave. Julie has a blog post on sexual violence that briefly mentions Rehtaeh. The response she got from a “jimmy j” is simply disgusting. No surprise that person is the same one who wrote filth about Rehtaeh on my blog as well. More on him later.

Thanks for the opportunity to talk Julie.

[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” ]This week on the show, host Julie Lalonde interviews Glen Canning, father of Rehtaeh Parsons. What is Rehtaeh’s legacy? How can we turn our anger into action?

Then, Nelly is in the studio to talk to Erika Smith from Take Back the Tech about the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.
